Comments: This round I took a pair of my buddies, neither of which had before caught a rainbow on a fly. Rain over the last two days raised the flow several inches and added a lot more stain to the creek than I would have liked (something between tan and green). Despite the less than desirable conditions, I Managed to wrangle 8 rainbows, and my buddies landed 3 and 4 (all 15 fish between 14 and 18 inches, and were all released. We were throwing a variety of egg patterns in as bright of colors possible due to the muddy conditions. The most productive pattern was a blaze orange puffball de in size 14.
I can't begin to thank CFRTU enough for the awesome experience, and will hopefully be back soon pending my school work load.
